At CES this year we saw some very interesting USB 3.0 external drive docking stations from Thermaltake. The first is a single bay version that has just passed GIGABYTE USB 3.0 motherboard compatibility testing.
It’s called the BlackX5G and if, like me, you can’t find it on their website keep an eye on this page and it should show up soon. I for one am looking forward to the dual drive docking station because it’s a perfect fit for the 5Gb/s bandwidth that SuperSpeed USB has to offer (2 x 2.5Gb/s SATA 2 drives = 5gB/s). Hopefully we’ll be playing around with one of those big boys soon.
